Uniworld Wins Best Dining at the Cruise International Awards!

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has won Best for Dining category at the Cruise International Awards. The awards ceremony, which took place in London this month, was the first ever held by Cruise International Magazine to celebrate the best of the best in the cruise industry. Importantly, the fact that winners were voted for by the cruise-going consumer is a tribute to the exceptional quality and service Uniworld offers its guests.

Uniworld began the ceremony by picking up the first award of the evening in the Best for Dining Category. Uniworld was recognized for its Zagat-rated restaurants and dining, for not just one specific restaurant, but for the impeccably high dining standards it has achieved across its 14-strong fleet, beating some of the cruise world's most well known companies across ocean and river cruises.

According to Guy Young, President of Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, "Winning in the Best for Dining Category is a testament to the dedication and work of Mrs. Beatrice Tollman, President and founder of our sister company, Red Carnation Hotels, and who is heavily involved in the direction of interior design and fine dining for Uniworld; Bernhard Zorn, Culinary Director of Uniworld; the executive team; the individual chefs; the food and beverage managers; and all the staff of Uniworld, who go above and beyond to ensure our guests enjoy a first class dining experience on all our river cruise ships."

Uniworld provides guests with gourmet cuisine using fresh regional food sourced locally and inspired by the appropriate season and region of the itinerary, and paired with a selection of complimentary fine wines chosen by Red Carnation Hotel's acclaimed sommelier Eric Zwiebel.

As further commitment to the fine dining offered by Uniworld, the company offers the Epicurean Adventurer Program™ available across 17 itineraries, and designed to take food and wine lovers deeper into the world of wine and food amidst awe-inspiring scenery.

Further to winning the Best for Dining award, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises also came 'highly recommended' in the Best River Cruise Category. As the Uniworld brand is just a year old in the UK, to be recognised in such a way by the consumer is a testament to the commitment and high levels of service shown by all staff.
